Height: 5’9″

Weight: 180lbs

Class: Junior

D.O.B: June 9, 2000 (Age: 20)


Strengths: ​Compact build with a low center of gravity, displaying very good AA, with outstanding balance, quickness, and agility, with very good COD, body control, burst, and explosiveness. In the pass game, Moore wins at the LOS instantly with his AA and understanding of leverage. He displays very good ability to change his pace through his route stem to manipulate DB's and attack their leverage. He creates separation on route breaks with his AA and play strength. He is good at manipulating the space between him and the DB covering him. He shows good mental processing to read coverages and understands where the soft spots in the defense are. He has solid hands overall and the ability to track the ball deep. He is best when getting him the ball quickly and using his RAC ability. He has outstanding quickness, elite field vision and contact balance to create after the catch. He can make adjustments on bad throws and has good body control. In the run game, Moore has gadget type ability and makes a big difference on jet sweeps. He uses his RAC ability here as well to make big plays. He is a versatile player to make big plays with the ball in his hands. He is overall a solid blocker and gives good effort here. Very good competitive toughness fighting for the ball and every yard possible with the ball in his hands. Moore is at his best with the ball in his hands.
Weaknesses: ​Struggles with concentration drops. He is always looking to make a big play and will sometimes forget to secure the catch. His size limits him as a blocker. He can play outside but his size makes him more useful in the slot. He will sometimes take false steps on routes when he is moving too quickly for his own good. He needs to slow things down sometimes when making his route breaks.
Summary: ​Moore projects as a number two WR right away that you want to get the ball into his hands on quick passes. He can play inside and outside and he does a good job of creating separation on all types of routes. He will make an instant impact as a returner on special teams. If he can stay healthy, I expect him to be a top WR prospect for the 2021 NFL Draft. He can struggle with concentration drops and he is quite undersized.
Grade: ​Starting Number 2 WR Right Away/Early 2nd Round
